It is a pleasure to join Miss Nepal US in welcoming everyone to its 10th Anniversary
Our global city’s diversity is its greatest strength and we are the proud home of a thriving
population of Nepali New Yorkers that has made invaluable contributions to the five boroughs.
Established in 2011, Miss Nepal US is guided by its mission to empower the next generation of
Nepali Americans, preserve their rich heritage, and support charitable causes in the United States
and Nepal. Its annual pageant is an opportunity for young Nepali American women from our city
and beyond to compete for scholarships and the chance to serve as an advocate and cultural
ambassador for their community. As you gather to celebrate this program’s milestone
anniversary, I applaud everyone associated with Miss Nepal US for their efforts to unite our vital
Nepali community in pride and fellowship and nurture its future leaders.
On behalf of the City of New York, congratulations to this year’s finalists. Please accept
my best wishes for a wonderful celebration and pageant and continued success.
